Of course, herbs and medicinal plants have always been a great feature and importance within the Rastafari Culture so it should come as no surprise that the Tuff Gong Herbal Garden provides points of interest and suggestions on traditional uses of some of Jamaica’s plants.

Trench Town Culture Yard Museum

This was the home of a popular community leader, Vincent ‘Tata’ Ford, it is said that Vincent ‘Tata’ Ford taught Bob how to play the guitar.
